Minnesota’s Open Meeting Law requires that meetings of governmental bodies generally be open to the public. The law was originally enacted in 1957, and its purpose was to prohibit actions being taken at a secret meeting where it is impossible for the interested public to become fully informed about a public board’s decisions or to detect improper influences. This presentation will discuss the groups and types of meetings covered by the open meeting law, and then will review the requirements of and exceptions to the law as well as penalties for its violation. This presentation will also review the requirements for holding meetings via interactive television or by telephone.
